IS it a new owner? Can anyone confirm?

I vowed never to go back to northlake again.
My wife was returning an unused still in box rear wheel bearing for me because they sold her some Korean junk.

They yelled/berated her for abt 10 minutes in front of my son and called her a liar saying they would never sell that at their store.

To her credit, she held her own and they finally gave her a refund minus some absurd restocking fee.

If anybody has the low down on this place let me know.
Its abt 5 min from my house.

I ran accross Po Volks just this week - as a referal from a friend who mentioned he just happend to pass by it recently. I went out there during lunch on Tuesday to pick up a new throttle cable. The guy was really nice and helpful. He told me when I left that it the part did not fit to bring it back. They have a parts counter and parts in the back - no showroom. You have to ask for the part and he will get it for you. No browsing Sad.

Here is the address and phone number from my receipt:

PO Volks Home
4473 Hugh Howell Rd

If it was someone nice and helpful it must have new owners. Hopefully he can seperate himself from previous experiences and gain some old customers the old owners lost. What a Face

Don't cave in man. If a business treated my wife that way, there is no way I'd go back and give them a penny of business. Think of those shipping costs as peace of mind that you will be treated with respect.

That sucks - you can go out to Hurrell Bug Parts in Cartlton. http://www.herrellbugparts.com/ They have a decent showroom and will do just about anyhing for a beetle. Also they have a decent graveyard. They have always been helpful and retruns or exchanges have been no problem at all.

yea another guy on sevwc_atl had this story to tell abt them

"I drove my bug in to Northlake to upgrade from a generator to an
alternator. Picked my car up, then went back to get my generator
(which was fine). Kenny looks around, doesn't see it, goes around
back and pulls one off the core pile of generators that he's got
piled up and says it's mine. Later, one of his employees told me
that a car came in that needed a generator, and Kenny told them to
put mine on that car. Let's just say they didn't my a$$ much after
that......"

If your looking for parts there is two stores I have nothing but high respect for them. One is in Marietta Ga. on Fair Ground Street and Roswell Rd. ( Foriegn Auto Parts of Marietta) and the other one is in Mableton on Veterans Memorial Hwy 1731 ( IMPART) 770 948 8353.

These stores can get you just about anything.

I used to work at Impart for 7 years.

Would save you from going all the way to Carrollton

Not to hurt anyone's feelings, but nowadays, the best swingaxle bearings I can get (FAG) are made in Korea. It stinks, but even the Germans are outsourcing in order to improve profits. I hate it.
